The NOCC's mission is to work tirelessly to prevent and cure ovarian cancer, and to improve the quality of life for survivors. Volunteers are needed for Massachusetts's 20th Annual Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer. The Massachusetts Chapter's 20th Annual 5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer event increases awareness, honors those affected by ovarian cancer, and raises funds to support the NOCC's local and national programs.

This event, located on DCR Mother's Rest Area, Carson Beach, South Boston, draws 1,300+ runners, walkers, survivors, and their families. This fun awareness event and celebration of life, has something for everyone. There's music, food, a vendor tent with quality merchandise, NOCC Central where participants can find literature, symptom cards, and engage with NOCC staff, and a Survivor tent, where women in treatment and beyond, may find respite, refreshment, connect with their peers, and add their handprints to the growing banner of survivors. Lastly, the course is terrific - it runs along the shore, and is flat, fast and great for the experienced and beginner runners alike!

Volunteers are needed to help manage our designated tents, registration, set up, clean up, water stations, and much more!
